I couldn't agree with you more, Earl, i have always viewed Hunter as the quintessential (there's that word again!!) American story teller with his songs about Rascals, Scoundrels, Outlaws, Gamblers and Ne'er-do-wells. These are all well told stories that anyone can relate to. Also I agree about the love songs, and would go further and say that those songs you mentioned and others delve far deeper into the emotions (often sorrowful) involved and don't approach the subject of of human relations from a teenage, sophomoric or glorified perspective (once again "I Wanna Hold your Hand"). Well said!!
